You show the Sony FE24F1.4GM in your gear list ... is this just a wish list?

But I have the same thought and considering the APSC only 24mm f1.8Z for an A6600 on order.

I think Sony will expand the FE f1.8 series (just a guess) to include the 24mm focal length.

So I have bought the 16-55mm f2.8 and will wait to see what happens in the next year.

If the FF 24mm f1.8 does not come, I expect the 24mm f1.4 GM will come down a bit in price and be a better but more expensive option. In either case, I would prefer a FF 24mm to use on my A7RIII as well as the A6600.

However I often see the APSC 24mm at really attractive prices so I might still buy a used one.

I also recently bought a 35mm Sony Zeiss OVF (from the RX1/RX1R) to use with the A6600 along with the EVF for a beautifully clear optical finder to compose landscape shots. It works in concept on my A7RIII with FE35mm f1.8 but should be even better on the A6600 due to the EVF being on the left side.
